Looking to take your Christmas tree lights to the next level this holiday season? While there are already plenty of LED light strings on the market, the ones I’ve seen in stores generally offer very basic color selections.

The i7+ has an oversized dock that transfers dust and debris into a larger container with disposable waste bags.
Robot vacuums have to be small enough to squeeze into tight spaces and clean under furniture, but this means that their onboard dust bins can’t be very large.
It’s late August, and already the mornings are getting cool and the Aspens are starting to change colors here in Colorado. That means that the masses will soon be sitting outside around fire pits roasting marshmallows.
I love any tool that makes projects around the house easier. I mean, having a robot to do all of my projects would be best, but that isn’t happening anytime soon. Besides, you can’t trust a robot with a hammer.

Firefighters are always looking for better and safer ways to put out fires, and these days some of the things that they come up with are seriously impressive. PyroLance is a new firefighting tool that is all about putting out fires in enclosed or inaccessible spaces.
